Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2. Carefree, quiet, relaxed, spacious vacation (honeymoon) heaven.

A large private cottage/home with full amenities located 2 miles above Waimea Bay, including, in addition to the full bathroom, an added outdoor shower area, beautiful acre of green lawn and a TV room with 50' Plasma TV/DVD and quiet split Air Conditioning.

Away from the crowds, this is a beautiful, serene, gated property for the honeymooners, couples or quiet individuals. Less than 5 minutes to beach at a cool elevation. Surrounded by tropical fruit trees and plants including Mango, Banana, Avocado, Star Fruit, Tangerine, Lychee, Jack Fruit, Lemon, Pomolo, Macadamia and Coconut trees.

Sleeps 1-2 adults maximum, no exceptions (one king size bed + one single bed). We added a single bed located in the TV room for two singles traveling. The TV/Bed room can be private by closing the curtains. To maintain the special nature and experience of your stay; sorry, not suitable for children and please, no smoking.

At the perfect elevation with cool Hawaiian breezes and away from noise and traffic this cottage/home gives you privacy with tinted glass windows, WiFi, cable, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher, AC and of course, plenty of aloha!

For the quiet, private persons you will find this to be a very special place to stay for a total retreat and recharged vacation. You will feel at home and at peace in this beautiful, tropical paradise.

We like to think of our place as a retreat from the world. A place to recharge, a base to return to, a feeling of peace and beauty. It is a home, away from home. Of course, we want the cottage to reflects this and wish our guests this experience.

This is just the best place to stay on the island!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a lot bigger than it looks in pictures, it has a cozy TV room (you don't see the TV on the wall), the king bed is really comfortable, and the kitchen is as large a regular one at home. Rick is a great host, even helps you with your bags! The location is perfect, close to everything but far enough away to ensure a quiet haven. You want to go into Haleiwa and eat at Haleiwa Joe's, the Blackened Mahi Mahi is the best. The landscaping is beautiful and you will enjoy the outdoor private shower. The food trucks are an institution here and you have the largest concentration of them right down at the bottom of the hill. Ted's Bakery is just up the road, yum. At the bottom of the hill there is also a great beach with parking to watch the sunset. We would not even consider spending our next trip anywhere else.

Large, lovely, well equipped spot above the north shore

  • 5 of 5

Gracious hosts, beautiful spot. Large, spotless, well designed and equipped cottage with excellent kitchen (sharp kitchen knives!) and extremely comfortable king size bed. We enjoyed watching the Olympics on the giant TV in the comfy TV room. The hosts Rick and Inge are hospitable and thoughtful. There's no lanai or regular outside eating space, but they planted two very comfortable chairs on their large, lush lawn and invited us to lounge there all we wanted. It was peaceful watching the wind mills turning across the tops of the trees.

Beautiful, peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was a spacious and welcoming place to stay. It was exceptionally clean and all Ammenities functioning properly. Up in the hills, or was peaceful and out of the hustle as we had been looking for. Rick was more than accommodating for anything we needed as well. Thank you!

North shore paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of being away from the hubbub of Waikiki.

The owners were very kind and considerate of our privacy, and provided us a refuge to kick back and relax for the full 2 week stay.

The property is just as described in the listing, especially the California king size bed with luxury linens and super comfortable mattress. We especially enjoyed the outdoor shower, which brings a special meaning to the term "being close to nature".

With all that being said, other guests should realize that dining options are rather limited in this area of Oahu, unless they are prepared to drive about 10 miles into Hale'iwa every time they want to go out for dinner. Many food trucks are closer to the property around Pupukea, but are not fine dining and are probably more for the surfer crowd.

A car is a must for any renters, as the north shore is about an hours drive from Honolulu. Even the local Foodland grocery store is a 2 mile jaunt down a rather steep road from the cottage, so not a walk-able outing.

"Peaceful, relaxing and very comfy stay at this cottage!"

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Rick and Inga for giving us an awesome place to stay, while we were visiting our mom, in Hawaii! We love the North Shore, and the beach, and the relaxed aloha spirit. My husband grew up on the North Shore, and we have stayed many places, this one was tops on our list. Rick and Inga were there for our arrival, to help us get acquainted with the surroundings, and were extremely helpful, whenever we had questions. They also respected our privacy. This place is beautiful, very peaceful, and the gated security was an added plus. So many favorites of this place: , the beautiful view, the rooster singing in the morning, an awesome, comfortable king size bed, great kitchen to cook in, beautifully decorated, and I absolutely loved the outdoor shower!!! We were surprised that air conditioning had just been installed, another plus! We were sad to leave this place, and hope to return on another visit! Thank you again, to Rick and Inga. All of your directions, & instructions were very clear. (comforting) We loved it!
